Moon Over Soho, by Ben Aaronovitch

I still have a few 2015 books to write up (though finished the first of 2016 this morning).

Moon over Soho is second in the Peter Grant series of novels about an occult policeman in London, of which I very much enjoyed the first a few months ago. I liked this one a lot too; I had hoped for more adventures with the personified London rivers, but I am happy to settle for jazz-loving brain-eating monsters. The narrator gets very convincingly grasped in the clutches of the bad guys without realising it. The ending is suitably downbeat and signals a narrative for at least the next book. Much enjoyed.

You will indeed see more of the Rivers of London if you follow the series -- but they don't show up in every book, which is frankly something of a relief: Ben's repertoire is quite wide-ranging.

I've really enjoyed the whole series, currently reading the most recent one.

This sounds like perfect reading material for G and me. Thank-you.
